I got the Daily Chump IRC bot running on the #openacs channel on irc.openprojects.net. It is a weblog created by logging all the URLs typed into the channel. It's written in Python so I really have no idea how it works. It creates XML files and comes with XSLT stylesheets to transform it into HTML.
Anyway the cool part is that I used the new version of ns_xml to run through all the XML files and convert them to HTML as an AOLserver scheduled proc. Check it out at h ttp://www.thedesignexperience.org/openacs/ircblog/.
